deficit, and of course, it is how he pays for it that is going to be the debate point. after his tuesday night speech, president obama hits the road for a three-day tour, and stops in asheville, north carolina, wednesday and atlanta on thursday and chicago on friday. and here's what we will make the state of the union different than other presidential addresses to congress. it won't just frame the coming year, but the budget battles to take place in the next three to six weeks. it starts with the $85 billion in budget cuts coming march 1st if nothing is done to alter the so-called sequester. according to the white house, the president will continue to press congress on the fiscal issues with tax reform and tax hikes and entitlements and he previewed that message in his weekend. >> there is no reason that middle-class families and small businesses should suffer because washington could not come together and eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that just don't work. >> the sequester has turned into a ridiculous blame game. the republicans are trying

proposed the sequester and insist it had become law. we believe there is a better way to reduce the deficit, but americans do not support sacrificing any real spending cuts for more tax hikes. the white house believes house republicans, who have warmed up to the idea of letting the sequester take effect, may get a wake-up call as they continue to see those -- the economy contract, that the fourth quarter numbers will be a wake-up call. the president pointed out yesterday that those cuts in defense spending caused the economy to shrink at the end of 2012. >> we've been reminded that while it's critical for us to cut wasteful spending we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep, indiscriminate cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. >> new numbers from the congressional budget office may provide some ammunition. the cbo projects the economy will grow at a measly rate of 1.4% this year and 3.4% next year. the cbo forecast is correct, 2014 will be the sixth consecutive year with unemployment above 7.5%, but expect to hear from republicans ab
